PREFACE. 



The writer of the following pages has devoted a por- 
tion of his time for the last four years in collecting and 
preparing for publication the records of the Gale Families 
in the United States and England. 

In accomplishing this work, he sent circulars and let- 
ters to all the persons that he could hear of by this name, 
both in England and the United States, soliciting commu- 
nications and family records. He also made one visit to 
Boston where he spent nearly three weeks in copying the 
military records of Massachusetts. 

The writer, however, has to regret that the enterprise 
has not met with that favor which he thinks its impor- 
tance demanded, as nearly one half of those who have re- 
ceived his circular, have failed to respond to its reason- 
able requests. In some instances, town and county offi- 
cers have neglected to answer letters,even containing mon- 
ey, and stamps for return postage, while others have 
promptly, not only answered letters, but several have de- 
clined receiving any compensation for the information 
furnished. While many of the Gales have neglected 1 < > 
answer letters and circulars, others have taken hold of the 
enterprise with zeal and furnished all the information 
within their reach. 

Of the Gale Families in England, we have obtained 
the most of our information from "Burke's Dictionary ot 
the Lineage of the Landed Gentry of England.

ly Andromache lie could not have anticipated that in a 
few centuries nearly all Europe would ignore the brave 
Achilles and claim to have descended from the defeated 
chivalry of Troy. But whatever might have been his or- 
igin, the head of the Gale family was evidently a stranger 
domiciled in England and as the name was not numerous 
in 1273 there may have been originally but one family 
who kept up the ancestral name, but since the introduc- 
tion of surnames, commenced in 1066 and "settled among 
the common people fully, inl307" the name has increased 
rapidly until the present time, and lias become numerous 
in both England and America, 

In the "Domesday Book" which was compiled in 1085 
by William the Conqueror and contained a list of most of 
the landed estates in England at that time with the names 
of the occupants for purposes of taxation, the name of 
Gale does not occur, from which Ave infer that the Gales, 
were not among the adventurers of that monarch from 
Normandy : for if thev had been they would, like others 
have had some of the confiscated landed estates assigned 
to them ; but the local names of the estates, which are 
nearly all English names, clearly indicate that before the 
< Jonquest the Gales belonged to the landed gentry of En- 
gland, and probably lost their estates by confiscation for 
their loyalty to Harold, the defeated and slain sovereign 
of England, at the memorable battle of Hastings. 

Upon this battlefield was erected the VAbbaye de la 
Bataille which was dedicated to St. Martin the patron 
saint of the expedition and "endowed with the property of 
theEnghsh who had died in the battle." Indeed, so com- 
pletely were the English despoiled "that,"in the language 
of HoHnshed, "there was neither governor, bishop, nor 
abbot remaining therein of the English nation/ 1

June 12, '64. J 
Dear Sir : 

Your favor with copy of letter from Dr. Gale, of Amer- 
ica inclosed, has been forwarded me here, where I am 
ruralizing for a short time. 

I should have been most happy if in my power, to have 
furnished any information on the subject of the letter, but 
unfortunately, I am not Genealogically learned. 

Still, if the one important item which Dr. Gale lacks, ia 
the names of Richard Gale's brothers and father, could 
probably be ascertained : and if, when I return to town 
I should be able to meet with this information, I will at 
once forward it to him. 

There is a barrister of the name of Gale at Portsmouth 
or Southampton, who presides at some court, and in the 
local papers, (Hampshire Advertiser) is called "Judge 
Gale'Vho might perhaps be able to give information to 
Dr. Gale. His name would be found in the Law Diet. 

For my part as I said before, I know not my genealogy 
but, I have always considered, the name should be 
spelt "Gael". 

I conclude our ancestors came over to England long 
before the conqueror, and even before Julius Csesar. 
I am, Dear Sir, 

Yours faithfully,

I much fear the information will be of little sendee, but 
shall be happy to make any further research you might 
Suggest, unless indeed yon have met with some other cor- 
respondent here who has been or may be able to do you 
more service than 1 can. 

You mention the priests of St. Katharine's. It seems 
there were always three "brothers," as they are called in 
the records. Two of them at the date mentioned (1635) 
were Walter Gray and Samuel Slater. The other is not 
mentioned. Is it one of these two named, who certified 
to the good standing of Richard Gale \ It has occurred 
to me as very probable that although certified to by the 
priest of St. Katharine's, Richard Gale might never have 
belonged to to the Parish, but perhaps have merely had 
introduction- or recommendations to the Priest from some 
distant part of the country. lie coming to London to 
embark for America. Is this probable :

Heraldry was an important institution in England after 
t h . i ci >n- mest in 106 1 >. 1 >v William of Normandy. It main- 
ly originated in the ho irs although in the iEneid it. 
is said of the tomb of the Trojan Hector : 

"On it jEneas piously heaped 

A mighty mound, Sepulchral. The oar the trumpet, 

Arms of the man. the airy Summit crowned/' 

During the reign of Henry III. heraldry became a sci- 
ence.

were kept, at the different ports in England, in which 
were entered the name, age and destination of emigrants 
and the fact that some priest giving his name and n 
dence, had certified that the persons "conformed to the or- 
der and discipline of the Church of England." 

This information enables the posterity to look up the 
ancestors in England of these emigrants, but after about 
J 635 all these entries were not made but only the facts that

The family eecoed of eicitaed gale 
and his descekdekts. 



1. ETC II AED GALE, the ancestor of the following 
Family in the United States, first appears, as the pur- 
chaser of a "homestalL" of six acres in Watertowne, Mass. 
in 16i0, it being a part of a lot of 9 acres, in the town 
plot granted to Elder Richard Browne. The balance of 
the lot of 3 acres, was purchased by Samuel Freeman, 
one of the first proprietors, who was said to be of Dev- 
onshire, England, and it became a part of his "homestall." 

From whence came Richard Gale we find no positive 
record, but as the name and Colony where purely Eng- 
lish, we infer, as beyond a reasonable doubt, that he' was 

an emigrant from England, but the fact cannot at this dav 
be proven by any evidence yet obtained, although the au- 
thor has instituted investigations in England which he 
hopes will in time settle the question. 

We also infer that Richard was a communicant of the 
Church of England. This inference rests on the fact that 
no person could emigrate from England to the Colonies 
until he had first procured a certificate from his parish 
priest, that,in his religion he was "conformable to the or 
der and discipline of the Church of England," coupled 
with the following statement in his Will :

who should "bring or cause to be brought" into the coun- 
try, "any of that cursed sect of the Quakers" or other blasp- 
hemous heretics," and also fining any one "forty shillings 
for every hour's entertainment" of them. 

The 2d, of Dec. L661, Richard Gale purchased of 
Richard Dummer, the north east half of the "Oldham 
Farm," containing 250 acres,on which a part of the village 
ofWaltham now Btands. This was one of the most level 
and fine tracts of land in old Watertown, and wasoecu- 
pied by Richard until his death and Ins posterity after 
him, until about L854, when it was sold by minor heirs 
and passed into the hands of G-ovemor Banks, the Maj, 

Gen. commanding the Dept. of the S. W. in 1864, and is 

retained as his homestead. 

However modest Richard might have been in everv- 

thing else, we obs srve, that he wasnot particularly so in 

the sizeofhis farm, which heevidently loved, or he would 

not have been so careful in his Will to preserve it for his 
posteritj . 

Whether Richard could read and write cannot be de- 
termined at this late day, but 'lie fact, that he signed iris 
Will with a mark,might lead one to believe that he could 
not write. Tin'-, however, <loes not necessary follow, for 
even at the present day, the Author knows from profes- 
sional experience, that many men, who were good writers 
at a previous day, from their weakness, prefer to sign 
their Wills with a mark. A^ he never conveyed any 
land, held town office, had church membership, nor car- 
ried on any trade, the question, probably, can never be 
solved. 

But if we conclude, that he could not, either read or 
write, it was not at that day considered any particular dis- 
credit, for the majority of our Xew England ancestors 
were suffering under the same misfortune. Indeed, so 



26 GALE FAMILY RECORDS. 

little did the people of Watertown regard education as 
necessary to the farmers, that they never erected the first 
school house until twenty years after the first settlement 
of the town, although Harvard College was founded for 
the education of ministers and others, the sons of the aris- 
tocracy, in the adjoining town as early as 1638. twelve 
years before the school house. But this school house,and 
the <>nlv one for fifty years, was but ±i feet Long and 14 
feet wide and as it was robbed by an [ndian of seventeen 
Greek and Latin books in L664, it was probably monopo- 
lized by those only preparing for College. 

Richard was probably married in England before he 
emigrated, and that his wife's name was "Mary," we only 
learn from the following record of Boston. "Sarah, dr. 
of Richard and Mary Gale b. 8:7: 1641, ofWatertown." 
They wen- probably stopping with relatives at Boston, at 
this critical period of married life, — to receive the first 
l»orn. — the consumation of human happiness. 

We have no record of the physical size or shape of 
Richard, but if we are allowed to judge of him by the 
average of his posterity, we may safely make him five 
feet and eleven inches in statue, strong and muscular, 
black eyes, black hair, rather long favored, and dark 
complexion, modest in his demeanor,of few words among 
strangers, social, domestic and temperate in his habits. 
fond of a good joke, liberal in his benevolence, firm in 
his will, and as a christian never bigoted. 

Ls a race, the Gales have been more distinguished for 
their athletic powers than for the culture of their minds, 
but the late generations are fast changing in this particu- 
lar, and the learned professions have a fair proportion of 
the present generation. 

They have ever been reasonably jealous of their rights, 
but strong friends to a well-ordered government ; and in 



GALE FAMILY RECORDS. 27 

l 

our Revolutionary struggle, they were an unit in taking 
up arms and marching to the fields of strife, from which 

several of them never returned alive. They were nearly 
as unanimous in the support of the war of 1812. 

In the war of the Great Rebellion, prosecuted to restore 
the Union as established by our Fathers of the Revolu- 
tion, we can only point to the long list of those named in 
nearly every family, who have both perilled and sacrific- 
ed their lives for their flag and the Constitution. 

It is a very common remark that the whole race never 
produced a criminal, but the Author can only say that he 
has never vet found one, unless Abraham and Henry.who 
took part as captains in the Shays rebellion are to be con- 
sidered as such.

THIRD GENERATION. 41 

no positive account of the place at which he settled, but 
&om the facts here given we think it very probable that 
he removed to Canterbury, Connecticut, The records of 
deeds in Middlesex Co., Mass., have the copy of a deed 
dated 1722 ; signed by ''Richard Grael, of Canterbury, 
Conn.," and conveying land in Watertown to John and 
Joshua Gael of Watertown. 

We also find the following in Caulkin's Hist, of Nor- 
wich, Conn : 

"A very sad accident happened in the year 1728. The 
Inhabitants were engaged in raising a cart bridge 2<> feet 
high and 25Q feet loflg over Showtncket river, near three 
miles from the town and had nearly completed the frame, 
when on the 28th of June, as they were putting together 
the upper work a principal piece of timber which lay on 
the foundation of this upper work being spliced, gave way 
at the joint, and falling tripped up the dependent frame, 
which, with its own weight, careened and overset — lUO 
feet of the bridge fell with 1<> men on it. and the people 
were prcipitated upon the rocks in all directions, — 20were 
severely wounded, and two killed instantly. These two 
were Jonathan Gale of Canterbury, 19 years ofiaere, the 
only son of a widowed mother, a very hopeful youth, the 
darling of the family ; and Mr. Daniel Tracy," e-:e. 

As the writers letter to the town clerk of Canterbury 
remains unanswerd he can get no further information, 
positive, of the family. The marriages of these of the 
daughters, as given by ''Bond's Genealogies ofAVater- 
tpwn," are of doubtful identity, and we give them with a 
mark of doubt.

he resigned, in Sept. 1769, and was succeeded by Capt. 
Elisha Goddard. In those days of French wars and In- 
dian raids the Captain of the Militia was regarded as the 
most important office in town. He gave his sword to his 
son, Isaac, with instructions, as tradition says, to have it 
preserved by his descendants of that name,andin 1864 it 
was in the hands of Isaac Gale, of Eoyalston,who present- 
ed it to Galesville University, Wis., for preservation as a 
family relic ; his own son, Isaac, who would have been 
entitled to the sword, having died in 1854. 

On the first day of October, 1776, Capt. Gale sold his 
farm and most of his property, that he had not previously 
given to his other children, to his son Xehemiah and re- 
ceived back a mortgage conditioned for the life support of 
himself and wife. 

By an assessment, of Sutton, in 1778, for taxes, this 
homestead property was rated as follows : 

Two houses and out-buildings, 

Eighteen acres plowing, 

Ten acres meadow, 

Twelve acres pasture, 

One hundred and ninety acres of

Tin* foregoing receipt is not in the hand writing of the

worth but one dollar.

to, R< al i 3ta1 9, be-

This amount* with what he had already sd on his 

oldest children, indicates that he was one of the most 
wealthy men in town. 

He was a Hotel keeper and kept a popular ping 
place for j . - and lawyers between Worcester and 
Boston ; many ane< . of which, he used to tell in the 

latter part of his life, lie was fond of Jokes, and tradi- 



FIFTH GENERATION- *'»3 

tion says that when Lis wife left one Sabbath for church 
she instructed Abijah to "put the pot boiling for dinner." 
and sure enough he put the pot in a five pail kettle, filled 
the kettle with water and had the pot boiling in good 
earnest when the good wife returned. 

Being a good bushu ss man, he was continually \ ressed 
with town oflices ; hence we find him Constable 17 r <4: 
on the committee to hire a Bchoolma in 1768; survey- 
or of boards and shingles, and on a committee to put in 
four ne a" pews in the church, 1769; butv sy or of highways 
in 1770 ; one of a committee of seven, in 177.'3 "to take 
into consideration ye rights as stated by the committe of 
Correspond', nee of ye t >wn of >nand of ye infirn 

ments and violati of ye same." After naming the 
grievances of the Colq] this Committee sa^ : "it ap- 
pears that every member of thi . qua!':' d to 
act in town affairs, should at all ti a propersense

Capt. Isaac Gale, took care of his father and mother, from 
Oet. 1, l776,to the time of their deaths and had the home-

On the military roll his name first appears as having 
made the campaign with his father in the Expedition for 
the relief of Ft. William Henry in Aug., 1757, and the 
6th of April 1759 he enlisted in the regular service in the 
Reg. commanded by Col. Timothy Ruggles and proba- 
bly served on the Northern Frontier under Gen. Am- 
herst during the balance of the war. From the 14th to 
the 17th of Sept. 1759, he was in the hospital at Fort 
George, when he returned to his Reg. 

In the Revolutionary War, he w as an ardent patriot of 
the fighting class, and on the Lexington alarm in April 
1775, he drew his sword, as first Lieut, of the company of

and in l778llenry removed to that town where he resided 
until he removed to Barre Vt. in about 1700. 

In Princton he lived in comparative independence, and 
being a man of good education, occupied a high social po- 
sition, and after the close of the Revolution joined hearti- 
ly in the discussions of the day, how an independent |but 
bankrupt state might be galvanized into life and a circula- 
ting medium in the shape ol money established. But 
while these subjt cts were racMngthe brains of the wise and 
good patriots, of the country, the amnesty proclamation 

had restored to Boston and other large towns the wealthy 
loyalists, who had left the state with the British army, 
when they evacuated Boston. 

These wealthy men having lost all sympathyfor the reb- 
el country and people on their return commenced indis- 
criminately the prosecutioD for the collection of their old 
claims, most of which had been outstanding during the 
war. This alarmed the otherwise quiet creditors,and par- 
ticular^ as u Gi\ :ks" as a legal tender did not then 
exist and any debtor to the amount of§5,couldbe ordered 
to jail. So great was the rush of business to the courts 

t 2000 cases were "said to have been entered at one 
term of the court at "Y. er. 

The -m held public meetings a: ;d petition- 

ed the le are for i 

The le '. lature setting in Boston under the influence 
of Boston merchi • <>n lawyers, who were also 

reaping a great harvest in high I d the desired 

relief under die plea that they laid no power, a plea gen- 
erally resorted too when there is a lack of disposition. 

The people then petitioned to the courts \ that they ad-

joumed over without granting the judgments, until some 
kind of relief cou I  afforded by the legislature, but the 
courts declared they would not be instructed in their dut} 
by the people, while Judge Artemas Ward, in a speech 
of two hours long from the steps of the Court House in 
Worcester declared to the people that their "conduct was 
treason and the punishment of treason was death." 

Thus the people of Worcester and other interior coun- 
ties were, for tw >und between two millstom 
the courts arid the jails, with nothing but bankruptcy 
and imprisonment staring them in the face. 

To soldiers who had so lately vindicated their rights by 
theirswords and had learned for seven years to treat the 
word -'traitor" as a by-word, it was no hard affair to fly 
to arms, not to overthrow their government but simply to 
temporarily stop the courts in granting judgments in civ- 
il cases. 

The people in many counties organized into companies, 
chose their officers, marched to the Court Houses and 
prohibited the holding of the courts. Benry Gale was 
captain of a company from Princeton and his brother 
Abraham, was Capt. of a company from Grafton. Dan- 
iel Shays, a brave officer in the Revolutionary war, be- 
came the commander or general leader. Thus matters 
run a short time when the Governor ordered out 4000 
men atid the "Rebels" disbanded, not however in Spring- 
field until they were fired on and three men killed. 

The "Rebels" studiously avoided bloodshed. 

But this tragedy, in the best style of the books, was to 
terminate in a farce. Judge Artemas Ward, who was a 
military man, but no lawyer, had only vindicated his mil- 
itary arm leaving his judicial arm still in limbo. As 

e2 



F IFTH GENERATION. 81 

the judge had boldly threatened the Rebels with the 
punishment made and provided for "treason," he caused 
indictments to be found against the supposed leaders in the 
different counties and convicted what did not slip through 
his hands by the verdict of the jury. 

The writer has procured from the court records in 
Boston a copy of the indictment and judgment, the mate- 
rial part of which is as follows : 

"At the Supreme Judicial Court of the Commonwealth 
o f Massachusetts began and holden at Worcester on th e 
last Tuesday of April A. D. 1787"&c. 
.. "The jurors for the ^Commonwealth of Massachusetts 
upon their oaths present that Jacob Chamberlain of Dud- 
ley in the same county, Gentleman,Henry Gale of Prin ce- 
ton in the same countv Gentleman, Josiah Jennison Jr. 
of Spencer in the same county Yeoman, being members 
and subjects of the Commonwealth afforesaid," &c * * 
"that upon the 5th day of Sept. 1786 and on diverse other 
d-ays and times as well before that time as since at Wor- 
cester within the said county of Worcester falsely and trai- 
torously did devise and conspire to levy war against this 
Commonwealth and then and there with a great number, 
of rebels and traitors against the Confth,_afforsaid,viz : the 
number of 500 whose names are yet unknown to the ju- 
rors being armed and arrayed in a warlike and hostile 
manner, viz : with drums beating h'fes playing and with 
guns, pistols, bayonets, swords, clubs and diverse other 
weapons as well offensive as defensive did falsely and 
traitorously prepare, order wage and levy a public and 
cruel war against the Commonwealth, &c, and then and 
there with force and arms aforsaid wickedly and traitor- 
ously did assault, imprison, captivate, plunder y destroy r

kill and murder diverse of the Leige subjects of the said 
Commonwealth,' 1 &c, &c. 

Under this indictment Jacob Chamberlain and Henry 
Gale were arrested and putnpon their trial. They plead 
not guilty and put themselves on "God and their conn- 
try." The cottft in it- great clemency assigned bo them 
James Sullivan and Levi Lincoln, Esq. as counsel two of 
the in"-! noted enemies of the Rebels thatwere practicing 
at the bar ; the lawyers being all hostile to the "Rebels" 
to a great extent. 

Thus organized Mr. Chamberlain was acquitted and 
Capt. (rale convicted oftreason and sentenced to "he ta- 
ken to the Gaol of the Commonwealth from whence he 
came and from thence Xq the p >f execution and then? 
be handed bv the neck until he be dead." 

When the dav of execution arrived the <>M soldier was, 
by the sheriff,marchedto the gallows ••■ rith gn -t h solemnity . 
the rope adjusted around theneckofthe \ rison sr 3 solemn 
prayers said by the clergy and when all was ready to 
send the prisoner to eternit ,the sheriff cai -ly drew 
from his po I the Governor's re] re and read it to 
the gaping crowd and th< ter was then withdraw , 

and Boon after rally pardoned. 

This was the maji law vindicated, 'VTud^e Ar- 

temas Ward's threats executed, the novelty of a"hanging 
bee" witnessed and an innocent man saved from death by 
the executive pardon based on the th ry that lawsfmust 
be general but that general laws sometimes convict the 
innocent of a crime. 

The same procedure was had in other counties where 
the General had convicted "Rebels" oftreason. 

Judge Artemas Ward to the contrary notwithstanding, 



FIFTH GENERATION. 83 

thfe position of the "Rebels" that their acts were not trea- 
son, is still believed by many, as they did not wish to 
overthrow the government but only dedred to resist the 
execution of the law for holding the courts for the time 
being for private purposes. This would not be Treason 
against the U. S. according to the case U. S. vs. Hoxie, 
Paine, 265, and the IT. S, courts refused to make treason 
of the resistance to the Fugitive slave law. 

Indeed, the Governor in pardoning the "Rebels*' in ef- 
fect held the offence not treason but only a contempt of 
the court. 

Thus ended the "first Bebellien'' but, its effects on 
Massachusetts did not end here, for a stampede for 
the wilds of Vermont and N. H. immediately com- 
menced, and thousands of the old soldiers who had won 
immortality on the battle fields of the Revolution sought 
in those new States for the enj< \ merit of those privileges 
of which they had been uenied in their native state, 
With others, Henry Gale removed to Barre Vt. He was 
a highly respected citizen of Barre Vt. for several years, 
when he removed with a son to Brighton IN". Y., where 
lie died August 13, 183o. He drew a pension from Gov- 
ernment the latter part of his life for his Revolutionary 
services. 

Of his Revolutionary services we have only metitioned 
inch records as the writer found at Boston, but there are 
several of his descendants who have heard him say that 
he was sometime an officer in the Revolution and in sev- 
eral battles. — Children :

(228) (YJ) PETER GALE of Barre Yt. born at

Pkudence French. He served his country in the Rev- 
olution, in the Continental Army during the campaign 
of 1778, in the Re<2:. commanded bv Col. John Jacobs, 
and was allowed £28 19s. 8d, for service 6 months and 8 
days and 120 miles travel ; and was on the muster rolls 
as "of Royalston." The writer cannot locate the place of 
service of that Reg. for that Campaign, but from the 
memorandum on the muster roll ; "Midleton Aug. 27, 
1778" he infers that it might have guarded the lower 
Connecticut river from the British, then occupying K.Y. 
city. The Res:, however, mi^ht have been at the seige 
of Newport R. I. under Gen. Sullivan. 

In Feb. 1793 Peter Gale removed his family "to Barre 
Yt., a month before the organization of the town, and be- 
came the 14th family in the town ; and there purchased a 
tract of wild land including a part of "Cobble Hill," that 
has since furnished granite for the building of the State 
House at Montpelier Yt,. and commenced pioneer life in 
earnest. The snow was then six feet deep in the heavy 



forest of that region.

(380) VII M aj. WALTER GALE,of Northboro. 

In July 1861 Mr. Gale enlisted as a private in Co. "C." 
of the 15th Reg. of Massachusetts Vols, and was soon 
after promoted to sergeant, Jan. 17, 1862 he was promo* 
ted to 2d Lieutenant, Oct. 24, 1862 to Captain and July 
14, 1864 to Major, when he was ordered home in com- 
mand of the Regiment, their three years term having ex- 
pired. 

Major Gale was in all the battles in w hich the Reg] 
ment was engaged during the three years and was twice 
wounded. 

We cannot better show the gallant services of Maj. 
Ga!e,than by quoting from the report of the Adjutant Gen- 
eral of Mass.for 1864, the services performed by the Reg. 

"This Regiment (15th.) left the State August 8, 1861. 
It was first engaged at Ball's Bluff, October 21, 1761 
at battles of the Peninsula, Antietam and Fredrieksburg 
in 1862, and at Fredrieksburg, Gettysburg, Bristow Sta- 
tion and Robertson's Tavern in 1863. The history of 
this regiment was brought up to Dec. 20, 1863, in my R 
port of last year.'" * * * «On or about the 1st of May, 
[1864] the campaign opened. A field return on that 
day gave the strength of the Fifteenth Regiment present 
for duty, as about three hundred officers and men ; of 
this number.two hundred and seventy-five were rank and 
$le." "In the battle of the Wilderness the regiment lost 
about one-half its numbers in killed and wounded." ''The 
simple statement that in all the marches and battles from 



122 SEVENTH GENERATION. 

the Rapidan to Petersburg, in which the Becond Corps 
was engaged, the FifteeDth Regiment bore its part, is id 
itself sufficient history." 

u On the 22d of June, the regiment, dwindled down to 
live officers and al> out seventy muskets, confronted 
the enemy near the Jerusalem plank mad, before Pet' 
bursr. A break or erap in the line of battle allowed tin- 
enemy to throw a large force on the flank and rear of 

 

the Second Division, Second Crops. Hidden from iriew 
by a dense undergrowth, the manoenver was not compi 
hended until too late. The ti: - -t intimation of the position 
of affairs, was a demand from the enemy i<» surrender. 
Taken thus by surprise, and overwhelmed by numbers, 
the remnant of the regiment was captured almost entire. 
Fonr officers and about Bixty-five men were marched 
off pn- ners of war ; one officer ai d five men i-- 
caped to tell the story. This officer being wound< 1 
the same day, and shortly after the disaster above men 
tioned, the few remaining, increased somewhat by the 
arrival of convalescents were placed for a ;»\v days in an* 

other command, until officers of the regiment who had 

 

been wounded in the campaign, and who were on tneir 
way to the front from hospital, should arrive. 

''On the 12th day of July, tin- regiment was ordered to 
proceed to the city of Worcester, Mass., to be mustered 
out of service, its term of three years having expired.. 
One company, not mustered in until August 5, 1861, was 
left in the field ; the balance, increased by detachment of 
sick and wounded men whose condition was such as en- 
abled them to travel^ men on detached Bervice, etc., ere 
tered the city of Wo tester about one hundred and filVv 
Strong. The reception these men received v. ill never bo

f< >rgotten as long as life and memory shall be granted 
them." 

"His excellency, Got. Andrew, and staff, together witi 
his honor Major Lincoln, and the city Authorities of Jjo- 
ton, welcomed the regiment home, thanking the men in 
eloquent words for the part they had borne in then 
country's struggle, and alluding with tender respect to the 
honored dead who had fallen in the fight. Both state and 
city were represented in the military escort and process 
ions. The citv. decorated with flags, wore a holiday as 
pect. and the crowded streets and welcoming shouts gave 
proof of the heartiness and spirit of the people.*' 

The -8th of the same month, the regiment was formally 
mustered^ out of service and Major Gale returned his 
sword to its scabbard.

(400) YII PETER GALE, of Waterbury V t. m. 
Jan. 27, 1805 Hannah Tottingham of Westminster 
Mass. Hannah was daughter of Nathaniel' (b. June 10, 
1740) and Esther (Blown) Tottingham, Son of Elisha (b. 
Oct. 18, 1713) and Sarah, (Lawrence) Tottingham; Son 
of Eliah, (b. Feb.28,1652 at Wo burn Mass.) and Rebecca 
Tottingham; Son of Henry and Ann Tottingham supposed 
to have emigrated from near London and settled at Wo- 
burn previous to 1 640. Henry was a devoted Puritan 
and one of the bold petitioners for the liberty of Prophecy , 
from Woburn, in 1653. Hannah had a vigorous mind) 
fair common school education, an amiable disposition, was 
an excellent mother, and a devoted christian of the Con- 
gregational church, and died strong in the faith and full 
of hope, on the 24th of Feb. 1848, at Waterbury Vt 

Peter Gale had a Massachusetts common school educa- 
tion up to 14 years of age, when he removed with his fa- 
ther to the wilds of Yt.after which his opportunities must 
have been very limited. He, however, wrote a fair hand, 
'was a good reader and understood'the rudiments of Gram- 
mar and Arithmetic. His memory was very retentive 
and in old age he would repeat pages of his old "Parry's 
Spelling Book and Grammar"that he had learned in boy- 
hood days. On the establishment of the "Barre Library" 
about 1800, he became a stockholder and industrious read- 
er of history and biography, and possessing good conver- 
sational powers, was ever an intelligent and agreeable 



128 SK\ BNTH G ::.\i.:;.\i !• 

companion, in social life. He united with the Congrega- 
tional Church at Barre about the time of ite formation 
and was very much devoted to the interesl of religion 
until about 1830 when he becam • skeptical and the bal- 
ance of his life was inclined to Deism. In moral life he 
was without a blemish to the day of his death, and hia 
honesty was proverbial. Politically he was an old school 
Democrat, voted for Jefferson in l s,| 4 and was an anient 
supporter of Madison and the war of l v l_. On the dec- 
laration of war he enlisted as one of the five"minute men" 
of Barre and was mustered into the U. S. service in tho 
fall of thi ir ami stationed al Swanton on the Canada 
line. Here he was attacked with the Measleswhich pro* 
trated his health bo that three months after hia enlist- 
ment, he was di&charg< d from the service, and senl home 
on foot, and as the small pay he had received from gov- 
ernment v xpended in hia Bickness, he begged his 
way home as a po irsicls soldier. The incidents of that 
iournev, <>t abuse from the Federalists and kind treatment 
from the Democrats, heoften i edto the Writer, to 
illustrate the party feeling of that day. When the British 
advanced to Plattsburg, he volunteered in the company 
from Burlington Vt. audfeached that place in time to 
join in the battle of Sept. 13th, 1814 and was posted to 
guard the ford of the Saranac river. 

On the 30th of April 1803, Peter leased of the School 
Trustees of Barre "the S. E, \ of the Second Division 
English School lot in Sd. Barre,'' as -'long as water runs 
& timber grows" for the annual rent of $6,03£, and 
three years after lie purchased of Ezekiel Wood an addi- 
tion to his farm of about 14 acres, for $140, and received 
a Warrantee deed thereof.

GALE FAMILY RECORDS. 129 

On this farm he erected substantial buildings and 
commenced life as a farmer,but bis buildings having burn- 
ed when the lire was running through the woods, and 
having lost his health in the service, he sold the farm for 
wooden ware in 1813 and removed to Burlington, "where 
lie opened a wooden ware shop and manufactured and 
sold such articles for several years. In 1817 he removed 
to Colchester Yt. where he and the most of his family 
were sick two years with the "fever and ague," then re- 
turned to Burlington and in 1824 removed to Waterbury 
Yt. and opened a new farm on the eastern slope of the 
Green mountains, in which town he died with "old age," 
Ang. 6, I 351, at the residence and under the attentive 
care of his daughter, Mrs. ITemw. lie lived to see his 
children all married and comfortably settled in life and 
then sunk to the earth like an "ear of corn fully ripe." 

But the peculiarity of his life is yet to be stated, He 
was a natural mechanic. He could build a house, frame 
a barn, erect a saw-mill or set a horse-shoe. He often 
made ingenious articles of machinery and the latter part of 
his lite experimented considerably on '-flying machines," 
on the principle of the screw as a propeller, but finally 
ca ne .» the very sensible conclusion that the air was made 
for birds but the earth for man. Although an attentive 
reader of the political newspapers of the day, he had no 
taste for political promotion and seldom would "accept 
even a School District office. He had the following 
children : 

Hiram, b. Feb. 6, 1808 ; m. Sally Bryant. 

Angel'/ no, b. Sept. 29, 1809 ; m. David Lord, 

Matilda, b. Aug.31,1811; m. James M.Henry.

searched and the $30,000, less only the amount loimd by 
Gale, was found in the possession of the wife of Whittle- 
sey. The wife drowned herself in Black river to cover 
her shame, and the husband was taken in charge by the 
government. In his religious opinions Nehemiah was de- 
voted to the Christian denomination, and was noted for 
his piety. 

His pecuniary circumstances became easy the latter 
part of his life, and his death was caused by the kick of a 
horse. His wife died of consumption Sept. 25, 1859.

James was b. June 7, 1809 and was a youug man of 
fair talent, whose superior social qualities made him

the habit increased and he became for a while disipated,

VIII Hon. GEORGE GALE LL. D., ofGalegvffle, 

Wis., was b. at Biirlington, Vt Nov. 30, 1810, and m. at 
Elk Horn Wis. Dec. 5, 1844, Gertrude, dan. ofCapt 

George Y on Qg of the latter town. George's father re- 
moved his family to Waterbury, Vt. in June L824 and 
commenced a new farm in the woode on the eastern Blope 
of the Green Mountains. The facilities for an education. 
was a common school, a mile down the mountains, which 
was made available, and the children all obtained a fair 
common school education including Arithmetic and 
Grammar. CTntil his sixteenth year George was regar- 
ded as a dull scholar, and made do more than the ordina- 
ry advancement in his studies, but excelled in hifl skill 
in hunting the Partridge and Woodchuck with his dog 
and gun,and in fishing for the speckled trout in the moun- 
tain brooks, to which sporta he devoted every hour which 
he could ohtain from his ordinary employment in clearing 
land and farming. But, in the summer of hifl sixteenth 
year, he borrowed of a neighbor, Walter Scott's Life of 
Bonaparte, which he read through <*ery attentively and 
it had the effect of arousing his latent ambition, and he 
came to the very sensible conclusion that usefulness, fame 
and wealth, was not so much an accident, as -an achieve- 
ment reached by patient industry and talent, and that in 
that age of science and knowledge the successful competi- 
tor would probably he the one best instructed in the sci- 
ence and knowledge of the world. 

From this time hunting and fishing ceased to be his fa- 
vorite sport and he devoted, every leisure moment in 



EIGHTH GENERATION. 165 

reading approved authors in history, biography and trav- 
els, and after about two years ho procured Flint's, treatise 
on Land surveying, and fully mastered its contents with- 
out an instructor and commenced practical'Surveyiug with 
success. After surveying, he took up Navigation, Webb- 
er's Ilutton's and Farrar's mathematics, Enfield's Philo- 
sophy, Henry's and Orlila's Chemistry, and works onAs- 
tronomy, Mineralogy and Geology, and at twenty-one 
years of age George had obtained a fair knowledge of the 

•/OCT O 

higher mathematics and Natural History. 

Thinking it would be well to test his attainments by an 
examination, Mr. Gale, submitted himself to Mr. Jeremi- 
ah Flint, A.M. a graduate of MMdlebury College in 1811 j 
who had been his master, a part of two winters years be- 
fore, in the common school, and after a fair examination 
Mr. Flint gave him the following certificate : 

Waterbury March 10th 1838, 
To all whom it may concern : 

The subscriber has been acquainted with the Bearer, 
G eorge Gale, for seven years and has frequently had him 
for a pupil. He loves study and has not loved it in vain. 
He is in a great measure self instructed, and by industry 
close application and perseverence he has, unquestionably, 
attained unto a more correct knowledge of Trigonomety, 
Navigation and particularly Surveying than most of our 
liberally educated young men. Such young men should 
be patronized, and, indeed they will be. The subscriber 
would not hesitate, a moment to employ him as a correct 
surveyor, in the common business of his avocation.

for the judicial term of six years, commencing Jan. 1,1857. 

When Mr. Gale first settled at LaCrosse he saw that 
all Northwestern Wisconsin was entirely destitute of any 
College, or other hiirh institutions of learnino- and he 
urged upon the landed proprietors of that place to set aside 
ten acres of land back of the Tillage and take the initia- 
tory steps to establish such an institution, but they turned 
a deaf ear and nothing of the kind was attempted. Mr. 
Gale then conceived the idea, of hot only starting a col- 
lege, but a town, himself ; and in 1853 purchased about two 
thousand acres of land at the present location of Galesville, 
including the water-power on Beaver Creek, and in Jan- 
uary 185-1 procured from the legislature of Wisconsin, the 
organization of the new county of Trempealeau, with the 
location of the county seat at Galesville, and a University 
charter with the same location. In June of the same years 
he laid out a small village plot and let a contract for th e 
erection of mills, but the mills (saw and lk>uring)were not 
completed until 1850, 

The Board of Trustees of the Galesville University, 
was organized in 1355 and a College buiklino: com- 
menced in 1858, and the preparatory department opened 
for students early in Mi y of the following year, and the 
collegiate department in September 1861 ; and the first 
college class graduated July 13, 1865. After the gradua- 
tion of the class Mr. Gale resigned the Presidency of the 
University when the Board unanimously adopted the 
following offered by Rev, W, II. Brocksom of LaCrosse : 
"Resolved, That the Board tender to Hon, George 
Gale, LL. D. late President of this University, their pro- 
found thanks for Ins able and faithful administration for 



168 GALE FAMILY EU ' 0RD8. 

the period of nearly seven years Eua President of the Fac 
uity and for over ten years as I t< sid< u\ of this B< ard.' 
•'Resolved farther, That we tender to Hon. Geo* 
Gale, LL. D., as its principal founder and patron, the 
Freedom of this University and the use ofita Library as a 
token of our high appreciation of his long and efficient 
services, for which he has e\ refused all pecuniary coifc- 

sideratioiu" 

The Galesville CTniversity went into the hands of 
the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1858 and a majority 
of the Board of Trustees are appointed by the ( 'inch. 

Mr, Gale removed from the then city ofLaCrosse to 
Galesville in May 1 857 and went on to a farm where he 
resided in 1866. 

Although not a regular College . duate in course, yel 
Mr. Gale received from the Vermont University al Bur- 
lington, the degr fthe Master in the Arts, in August 

1 s 5 7, and t*mm the Board of Ti ofGalesville I'ni- 

ver.-itv. in July L863, th< of LL. I ». 

Mr, Gale's health partially failed in the Summer of 1862 
and the three following winters I i ul in the South and 
East, most of the time in the service of the Sanitary and 
Christian Commissions. During the months of February 
and March he had charge of the ( . S. Sanitary Commis- 
sion Depot on Morris Island S. C. for tin Beige oi Charles- 
ton. 

Mr. Gale has not entirely ignored literary labors, hut 
in August 1S45 started the "Western Star,"the first news- 
paper published in "Walworth County, Wisconsin, which 
he sold out in less than a year, and in 1846, issued the first 
edition of his "Wisconsin Form Book" 5 which was re vis-

ed and re-published in 1848, 1850 and 1856, and 5500 
copies sold in Wisconsin, lie has also the manuscript 
prepared and in press, of a book entitled "The Upper 
Mississippi, or Historical Sketches of the Introduction of 
Civilization into the Northwest," a work covering the pe- 
riod from 1800 to 1866 ; and has been the regular corres-

GENEOLOGY OF THE TOTTIXGHAM FAMILY 

m AMERICA. - 



TOTIXGIIAM was the name of a very ancient and 
aristocratic family ot London, Eng. and its suburbs, where 
there is still ''Tottenham Court Road" an important street 
in London and "Tottenham," a town near the city. 

The Totenhams had their well authenticated coats of 
arms in the Fendal ages and Burk gives the line of des- 
cent from several distinguished in the early history of 
England, but our limits will not allow us to copy. 

Henry became a nonconformist of the strictest puritanic 
order and therefore came to America with his religious 
brethren for the enjoyment of that freedom of conscience 
which was denied him in his native land, and is the only 
one by that name that ever emigrated to America so 
tar as the information of the writer extends. 

He settled and purchased a farm near the village of 
Woburn Mass. whi discontinued with his descendants until 
about 1845 when the proprietor, an old maid by the name 
of Rebecca, willed it to her hired maid. 

"We give in the following records of all the Tottinghams 
we have heard of in America except Henry Edwin Tot- 
tingham,whom the writer met at "Waltham Mass. in 1864 
who promised his family record but has neglected to fur- 
nish it. He was a second or third cousin to the writer, 



174 TOTTINGHAM FAMILY EBOOBD , 

and was born near Ashburnham. He did not know the 
name of his grandfather. 

In latter years the name has been written"Tottinsrham' 

in Mass, and Yt.

[iagerstown Maryland, 1773, and m. Nancy TV ALDRON,of 
Schenectady K Y. in 1800. His mother, Christiana was 
the daughter of Christopher Yought, a wealthy farmer of 
Hunterdon 1ST. J. and married, Rev. John Young of Hun" 
terdon, a Lutheran minister, who was put in charge of the 
Hagerstown church. Christiana died when her son 
George was only two weeks old and George was taken 
home by Mr. Yought, his grandfather, and brought up to 
manhood. Rev. John Young married again and had a 
family,one son of which was a judge in Ohio. The last 
notice which the writer has found of him is the following 
in a letter from Rev. II. M. Machienberg to Rev.Br. Frev_ 
linghausen of the University of Halle, dated about 1783 : 

"In Maryland, in a neighborhood termed Conecochea- 
gue 9 (now Washington county) is stationed the Rev. Mr- 
Young, who has charge of three Congregations, Hagers- 
town &c. He was examined and ordained several years 
ago, by our American ministerium, but during the present 
vear met with a sad accident : namely, his horse fell and 
threw him headlong on the ground, on his way to church. 
He arose again uninjured, but then his horse kicked him 
and broke three of his ribs which have not been properly 
set,but have grown crooked so that he moves with difficulty 
and will scarcely be able to continue his pastoral labors,' 
(See"IIallesche Nachrichten," page 1-113.) In a previous 
letter dated Dec. 6, 1782 between the same persons it is 
stated that "Rev. Young in M. D. is a man who labors 
with industry and fidelity, and faithfully discharges his 
duties, both in life and doctrine in several congregations'' 
(same page 1425. The writer is indebted to Rev. Dr, S. 
S. Schmucker of Gettysburg College, Pa. for the forego-

sons were evidently the children of Edmond and Hi 
one of them, but as we do not find any of them as far 

north as York, or bearing the name of Hugh, the writer 

is forced to assume the probability that they were the 



FIRST GENERATION. 189 

children of Edmond of Cambridge, but wore born in En- 
gland, as no record of their birth has yet been lound in 
this country. 

But if we are totally in error, either in the tradition or 
the assumed probabilities, we nevertheless accomplish the 
purpose of this work, of giving historically all the facts 
we can gather relating to the persons named. If they 
were not relatives as assumed, they nevertheless had an 
existence, and filled their appropriate niches in the great 
temple of the world. 

1 EDMOND GALE, of Cambridge, died in Boston. 
in 1642. Supposed children : 

2 1 Thomas b. and m. probably in England and set- 

tled in Xew Haven, Ct., where he had Martha 
bapt. March 18, 1660, and Abu/ail, bapt. June 
22,1660. Their births are mentioned as follows : 
Martha, b. Mav 6, 1655 and Abigail, b. Mav 5, 
1660. We have no further mention of Thomas 
or his children : 

3 2 Robert, b. — . The only mention of him were 

the facts that May 14, 1659, he receipted sugar 
of "William Hollisworth at Salem, and again in 
1666, receipted 3700 lbs. of Muscovado Sugar at 
Salem.

pears at Beverly, where he is called a "seaman." Here 
he often buys and sells land until March 10, 1717 — 18, 
when "Sarah, of Beverly, widow of Edmond Gale," sells 
land to Azor Gale. Azor, the same year gives land to 
James Chapman, in consideration of money furnished by 
Chapman to Edmond and said Chapman and Mary tak-

hundreds of ministers and influential layman, and prompt- 
ing; to the establishment of similar institutions elsewhere 
over the country. We believe that tbjs prosperity con- 
tinued so only as Mr. Gale managed its affairs ; but after 
he left, a spirit of ultraism and division arose, so that fi- 
nally the Institution passed into other hands and lost its 
distinctive character. Nearly all Manual Labor Schools 
have failed, showing that the Oneida Institute owed its 
long success more to the wisdom, energy and benevolence 
of its founder than to the complex principle on which it 
was established. 

But the great life-work of Mr. Gale was the founding 
of Knox College, at Galesburg, Illinois, in the year 1835. 
With herculean labor he first procured among Eastern 
churches funds for tli e purchase of a township ol land 
and induced a large number of intelligent and influential 
families to migrate West, as the nucleus of a Christian 
community, in the midst of which the new'College was to 
rise. He headed this migration, spent his first season in 
a log shanty, and shared the general hardships and perils 
of the undertaking-. As our readers know, the enterprise 
was a complete and glorious success. The city of Gales- 
bur^ w T ith its ten thousand inhabitants, moral, healthy and 
prosperous ; and Knox College, with an endowment of 
near a hundred thousand dollars, attest the wisdom, ener- 
gy and benevolence of Mr. Gale. Visiting Galesburg, si 
ejus monunientum quueris — circumspice ! 

In the College which he had founded, Dr. Gale officiat- 
ed many years as a Professor, and held the office of Trus- 
tee at the time of his death. He was, from intellectual 
conviction, a sound Presbyterian ; and therefore he resist- 
ed,wdth great earnestness and final success, all efforts from 
any quarter to unsettle the principles on which Knox Col- 



222 G u.K PAHIL1 1:1 CORDS. 

lege was founded. He wae also much inten sted and en- 
gaged in protecting the Presbyterian churches of Lie vi- 
cinity t'n Mm sectarian Proselytisnij which has beer at* 
tempted with plaus'ible motives and on a grand Bcale. — 
Hence he urged and advoci i P >yterian organ-

ored name, but many of the virtues of their excellent 
father. His health was always feeble, especially in his 
latter years. Probably his active mind, acute sensibility, 
and laborious habits, wrought too powerfully for his phy- 
sical strength. His trembling hand gave long premoni- 
tion of that sudden paralysis, which closed his life at 
Galesburgh, September 13, 1832, at the age of seventy- 
two. At a good age. in the bosom of his family.of a sren- 
tie disease, with the hopes of the gospel, surrounded by 
the rich and enduring monuments of his piety, energy, 
and benevolence, he passed quietly from earth to heaven. 
So far as he is concerned such a life needs no eulogy, such 
a death no regret. But we may remind ourselves of his 
virtues for our imitation, and we may lament a death 
which bereaves us of his friendship, his example, and his 
prayers ; and the church of his presence and his influence. 
His intellect was strong, clear, logical, acute, penetrat- 
ing, active, well furnished, and well disciplined. In imag- 
ination, style, and pulpit power he was respectable, but 
not eminent. His judgment of men and things was 
sound ; hishopefulni was large, his faith confiding, his 
will resolute, his fortitu : e unshrinking, and his courage 
unfaltering. Aman governed byrea on and conscience, 
rather than by im] and pa '.■  u knew where to 

findhim. His prejudices, i mded in conviction, were 
strong, and his antipathies liable to 1 lad I with sever- 
ity. Hi tdships wer ' :d endur- 
ing ; justifying the adhesion and < nee of his true 
friends, Eispietvwasa governing pri e oi jdzed 
into his whole being, and controlling his plans, hi:, labors, 
his comforts and his purse. Before those who deserved 
rebuke he stood up sternly, but'before his Maker he lay 
in the dust His works praise him, and his memory will
